Services for Faculty and Staff
Information Literacy Instruction Sessions
The library offers instruction sessions on a variety of library and information literacy topics. These sessions can range from a general introduction of library resources including our facilities, online catalog and databases, to a study of advanced research methods. Each session can be customized to fit the needs of your students and classes.
Blackboard Class Support
We provide personalized support for classes using the Blackboard Learning System. A librarian can serve as a "personal librarian" to your class using the Blackboard forums to answer questions and assist students.
Topic-specific research guides are being developed and available online. We would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations from faculty on the topics and resources provided.
Library News and Events
The library has a new online spot named Word of Mouth where you can find the latest updates on library services and resources, get research tips, find out about useful websites and tools, and even hear from guest speakers.
Chat and Email Support
Librarians are available by email or our chat feature to answer any questions you or your students might have. Visit the Get Help Now page for more information.
Interlibrary Loan Service
Items can be borrowed from other CAC libraries, as well as libraries outside the CAC system. Orders might take some time to arrive, so be sure to make requests in advance.
Faculty members can place materials on reserve for student use. Contact the library to complete a reserve request.
Request and Recommend Materials
The library is continually adding new items to its collections. We welcome and encourage faculty requests for material that support your curriculum. Email or call the library to place a request.
